Kano Police Command has released on bail, Aminu Sule, the eldest son of Jigawa state Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido detained in connection to a fatal auto crash that claimed the life of a middle aged man in Kano, Wednesday night.

The release by the police came on the heels of unconfirmed report that parents of the auto-crash victim had been convinced to drop legal procedures against Aminu Sule amid juicy promises to settle out of court.

Aminu Sule in a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) was alleged to have crushed to death a middle aged man along BUK road by Rumfa College Kano around 8.55 Wednesday evening and was arrested on the scene by security agents.

His detention by the police in Kano is coming barely a month after operatives of Economic and Finance Crime Commission arrested him at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport over alleged money laundering.

The Police Public Relation Officer, Kano police command, ASP Magaji Musa Majia told newsmen in Kano that the case has been referred to the Director of Public Prosecution
